I started Kruse’s commentary on the Letters of John. I decided to go right to that from the Letters of Peter and not read a regular book in-between because I want to keep moving ahead on those after some lost time.
Maybe it’s because it’s a small book, but 1 John seems to have connections all over it. There are things that seem contradictory but are really complimentary and the whole letter needs to be understood as a whole. I guess that’s the case with the whole Bible.
